Who Should Manchester United Be Looking To Sign This Summer?

Manchester United would have been disappointed in their Champions League performance last season, but having come runners up to Manchester City, they will know that they are starting to make progress in the league. However, due to the success that they have had in the past, United fans will want more than 2nd place and to do so their owners and manager will be looking to the transfer window this summer to improve their squad and below are some of the players that United should be looking to sign this summer.

The first player that Manchester United should be looking to sign this summer is a player that we believe that they should have brought in last summer which is Jadon Sancho. Sancho couldn’t be signed last summer as United weren’t willing to match the price tag that Borussia Dortmund were offering which was a reported €120 million however as the season has gone on, Dortmund are now willing to lower that to €90 million and we believe that the likelihood of this transfer getting over the line this year is very likely.

If you are looking for a site which is able to offer betting markets for all of these United transfers, then there are some here which are offering the best odds. Not only this, but they are a rare site in which are one of the only betting sites on the internet that are completely gamstop free – something certainly worth checking out.

Another area in which United are crying out for if they are looking to go on to challenge for the Premier League and Champions League is striker and with Harry Kane claiming that he wants to leave Tottenham this summer, we believe that he would be one pof the best bits of business that United could do. This is since Harry Kane is a proven striker in the league, averaging 23 goals a season for the past 7 years and would slot perfectly into the team.

And finally, United could do with a centre back partner for captain Harry Maguire and Raphael Varane has made himself available from Real Madrid and could be worth the punt. Varane is in the prime of his life and be the perfect partner for Maguire at the back and would complete a decent back four for United and one that could certainly go on to challenge some of the best defences in not just the league, but also in the world.

Reds’ first three games moved for live TV

There is another Sunday afternoon fixture to look forward to as Ole’s men will face Wolves on 29 August, this time with a 16:30 BST start.

It is a quick return to Molineux as we beat the Black Country side 2-1 in the final league outing of last season, but there will be a new man in the home dug-out as Nuno Espirito Santo has departed, with his fellow Portuguese coach Bruno Lage taking over the reins.

The Premier League has also noted our trip to West Ham United on 18 September is subject to change if the Hammers progress in the Europa League.

Hannibal explains his evolution at United

That versatility is often tested in the younger-age groups and, when the Reds found ourselves struggling to break through Liverpool’s massed ranks after they were reduced to 10 men in the FA Youth Cup tie earlier this year, Hannibal was tasked with dropping deeper to try to influence the game.

It led to him operating in a different role, and curbing his natural instinct to get forward, but proved another valuable lesson as he impressed, despite the Merseysiders holding on to their 1-0 lead and going all the way to the final before being beaten by Aston Villa. It was his only appearance of the season in his actual age-group, the Under-18s, but could end up being one that adds considerably to his overall education.

“That’s right because, as a team, we hadn’t really managed to get our game going,” he said of the switch. “So I dropped a bit deeper, in order to get on the ball and start us playing. As the team gained in confidence I returned to my usual position and I think we played well. Unfortunately, we lost, but I think we’d played the better out of the two teams but there you go. There’ll be a next time, and this is what the learning process is all about.”

That learning process has been ramped up for the teenager recently and is only going to increase when he returns to prepare for the 2021/22 campaign.

Woodward’s update on return of supporters

Woodward said the absence of fans had “proved that they are the lifeblood of the game” and, while it is not yet clear how quickly football grounds will be allowed to return to full capacity, he was hopeful of sizeable crowds when the new Premier League season kicks-off in August.

“Following the successful return of limited numbers at the end of last season, and continued trials of increased crowds at sports events this summer, we remain optimistic about the prospect of fans returning to Old Trafford in larger numbers going forwards,” said Woodward, in remarks accompanying the club’s third-quarter financial results.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the players will be hoping to have fans cheering them on for the visit of traditional rivals Leeds United to Old Trafford on the weekend of 14/15 August, which was announced this week as our opening fixture of the 2021/22 Premier League season.
